LITTLE ROCK, Ark. — Voters are casting ballots in a runoff election that could result in Little Rock's first popularly elected black mayor , six decades after Arkansas' capital city was the center of a school desegregation fight. Frank Scott and Baker Kurrus are running in Tuesday's runoff election for the nonpartisan, open seat. If Scott wins the race, he would be the first African American elected mayor of Little Rock.

On Wednesday, November 8, Jacob Frey was declared the winner of the Minneapolis mayoral election. He’d led on election night, capturing around a quarter of Minneapolis voters’ first choice selections, and after five rounds of ranked-choice voting tabulation he edged out second-place finisher Raymond Dehn. None of this is news to someone who’s been paying attention to Minneapolis politics. But on Friday last week, city staff posted a spreadsheet containing the actual rankings for mayor of the 105,928 ballots cast in the election. (There were only 104,522 votes in the election for mayor because 1,406 ballots had no valid votes for mayor as first, second or third choices.) Of course, nothing in this data changes anything about the outcome of the election, but it can give us a little more insight into the preferences of Minneapolis voters than is possible either from the election night results or the RCV tabulation results released by the city.
